Sustainability and reducing waste is very important to us too, and influences our seasonal menu, using local farms employing regenerative practices. Sustainablity also plays a huge part of the choices we make within the day to day operation of the shop, and we are always striving for new ways we can reduce our waste, and impact.

Together with our Hackney Downs bakery we hand craft all our sourdough, venoisarrie and baked goods using ancient grains and wholewheat flours grown from regenerative farming practices within the UK.
